Scientific studies have shown that argan oil revitalizes the skin, boosts the vital functions of cells, restores the skin barrier and neutralizes free radicals. Of the oleic-linoleic type, argan oil contains 80% of unsaturated fatty acids just like olive oil; it nevertheless has a clear superiority over it due to its richness in essential fatty acids (linoleic acid: 34%).
